Nice update! I enjoy the Tabs skin very much. So far I have discovered the 7on tabs skin and the classic_tabs skin. Are there other tabbed skins for MR 5.0 that I am overlooking?

NoHitter's Vitreous Blue and LastFM MR skins have Tabs.

Thanks for the tip. I had overlooked those three skins in looking through the Artwork forum as they were not labled as tabbed. I had incorrectly assumed they were MR 5.0 non-tabbed versions.

1) I don't think scrollbars is an option, but I guess I could split the options over more panels. I thought people were using larger and larger resolutions these days though? I might try and put in a resolution check and show different panels for different resolutions.
2) I'm not sure how much control I have over the player object, but adding a link is a good idea - I plan to add some other controls/options for this anyway.
3) Why would you want to right click and then select, instead of just left clicking?
4) I could probably add a button which performed the registry change for you, if that's what you're after? I wouldn't want to do it automatically though, as it is changing security settings.
Hello Trix thx for your answer.

1) Resolution check? That would simply be awesome!

2) Nice :) A link would do it for me.
Some suggestions:
.Possibility to query for live version, album version, karaoke, cover, acoustic, remix, ...
.A mean to navigate between the different videos with back and forward button for example.
.An option to choose in which resolution version the videos are shown when the choice is available.
(360p, 480p, 720p, 1080p)

3)Right click or left click, it doesn't really matter to me.
What I meant is that it would be nice to have a fast way to show/ hide the "title bar" (maybe I used the wrong term with caption?) without having to go to tools/options/monkeyrock.

4) I totally agree that it shouldn't be automatic.
Maybe a window could pop up when the user install monkeyrock. With a message advising him to perform the registry change to get a better MR experience. And a link or button to perform the change.
Also the possibility to do it later. ( If the user didn't do it right at installation )


On a side note, I noticed that if the MR panel is larger than the video, the video is aligned to the left side.

IMO it looks better when aligned in the center. (But thats just a matter of taste)
I was wondering: Is it something that can be controlled by the skinners?

Cheers.

It may take a month to iron out all the bugs in MR5 and there seem to be a few, but that is expected with a new release. I also worry when there is a release with a huge amount of features plus bug fixes to previous versions. It is sometimes a recipe for disaster.

I am sure it will all work out

Any chance of releasing a version of 4.1 with the bugs fixed .... ie apostrophe and special character problems
I realize it is a matter of preference, but it seems to me that you can "downgrade" MR5 to MR4 functionality simply by deselecting many of the features and functions. Maybe I'm missing something.... Is there something in particular that MR5 has that you do not want? ...and that you can not get rid of? I haven't come across anything new that I can't just turn off.

Check the original thread for the skin. For example, DreadM's 7on MR5 skin is in the 7on forum thread.

They are in the first post of each skin's thread in the Artwork forum. In addition to the 7on thread, there are MR 5 skins in the two LastFM skin threads, the Vitreous thread and the Spotify thread. There may be others I missed as well.

There are a lot of skins mostly emerged in the "Artwork" forum. Skinners are also emailing them to me for the most part, and I plan to mirror these files on my website and will list them in the "Monkey Rok" description on there. Sorry I've been a bit slow to do this but I've been away and only got back today.

@Owyn - thanks for the links but as Mizery_Made has pointed out this appears to be caused by an MM bug which has been fixed for the next version.

@Mizery_Made - thanks for pointing out that bug.

@Dreadlau - resolution check (1) and extra video panel options (2) won't be in the next version, but they are on my list for a future version. Ah, your image indicates you mean the panel caption bar (3) whereas I thought you meant the section caption bars - it wouldn't be possible to put this in a context menu because the whole panel needs refreshing not just the html content. With regards to the video left aligning, the script actually sets the video to be the width of the panel, which works for me, I'm not sure why this is not working for you. :-?

@spikerweb - do you have a fix for the borderless issue?

@Sirandar888 - this has been an exceptionally large release, but I hope to have a smaller one with most of the issues resolved at some point this week. I have no plans to go back to version 4.x when my limited time is better spent IMHO on version 5.x.

Did a quick test on Nohitter's MR Vitreous skin.

Decided to hold off any further testing of skins until MR 5.1 available. :roll:

It's mostly there, 6 more issues to look at. I've added a few new options as well, but none that need localised strings, these will have to wait for 5.2. Unfortunately I have had to make changes to "SkinFunctions.vbs" so any skinners which have released this file in their skins will need to update it again for 5.1, but this is the only one.
